I've been contemplating weightless surgery for about a year and a half.  Im at my heaviest weight and the weight just doesn't seem to come off.  I am an active person, CrossFit four times a week, I also work at a hospital which means that I can walk up to 10 miles a day.  Unfortunately I have asthma as well thyroid issue that just doesn't want to stabilize which makes it harder to loose the weight.My insurance requires that I weigh-in six months, I’ve already done 3 so its getting closer and I'm super excited! I have my fingers crossed that I get approved!
I want to have the gastric sleeve surgery for the following reasons: 
Im on multiple asthma medications to help me breath better   My nephews keep asking me why my tummy is so big Ive recently started to feeling embarrassed to go out and socialize with people and lastly…. severe joint pain in knees, hips and back
